. this goes back to the presidency of george bush. we heard a lot of the same -- it's almost the exact same sort of scenario. you had some people on the far left in congress talking about impeaching president bush. and you had the leaders of their parties saying, we're not really interested in that. that's a side show, a side track. but for republicans it seems to be a fever dream they can't shake, that they really want to impeach this president. it seems odd, there's certainly one way to get rid of a president who's unpopular and incompetent. that's through an election. and i think obviously, that ship has sailed. >> and andy, you know, just to touch upon that if you could follow up on that, prior to the recent election, the gop way to go forward was to try to defeat him in this election, in fact some of them said it was their soul priority. we know that didn't happen. what should we be doing to making sure they are making gains in 2014 and 2016. is this the way to win elections? >> no, it's not, mara. i think the impeachment story is overblown. everybody is out of town. there's no real ne

panel, democratic strategist and former clinton white house senior adviser. former george w. bush aide and a republican pollster. sara, i want to start with today. john kerry's best speech today may turn out to be historic speech. hillary clinton never made a speech like that as secretary of state ever. they let kerry do it and he delivered. now president obama did not have a formal speech but his remarks really sounded to me like he was pulling back from what kerry did. and i don't know that the american people may be confused. what's your take. >> i think the whole world is confused by what this president is saying and how he's saying. he's the reluctant president on this issue. and when you look at what's going on in syria, and the mess that it is, and mess in some regards by the president's own making. you know, let's remember this isn't the first time assad has used chemical weapons against his people. the president put a bright red line in the sand and then allowed assad to use chemical weapons again a second time. >> right. so, americans don't seem to want to do this, although i
